Laryngitis is the inflammation of your voice box (larynx) from overuse, irritation or infection. In laryngitis, swelling of the vocal cords causes distortion of the sounds produced by air passing over them. As a result, your voice sounds hoarse. In some cases, your voice can become almost undetectable. Most cases are triggered by a temporary viral infection or vocal strain and are not serious although chronic hoarseness can sometimes signal a more serious medical condition.

Laryngitis is typically treated by resting your voice and drinking plenty of fluids although a WellNow visit may help you manage symptoms and address any complicating factors. Concerning symptoms include having trouble breathing, coughing up blood, persistent fever, increasing pain, or trouble swallowing. For children, additional symptoms of concern include noisy, high pitched breathing sounds when inhaling, drooling more than usual, and high fever (above 103 degrees). If you or your child is experiencing these symptoms, it is important to be seen by a medical professional.
